    Great sandwiches & various gourmet items (cured meats, cheeses, etc.) but be prepared to wait for your sandwich to be made. Call it in to avoid the wait. I like the Parma with added turkey & balsamic

    It's cheese, and nice people, and free samples, and lots of other little goodies that you won't be finding at a normal grocery store. I love this place! Chaubier is my fav.

    The Willie Brown Bird. Cheese Plus shines most when they put the emphasis on plus. Our favorite sandwich there comes with smoked duck and fig. There’s cheese on it too.

    The weekends are packed, so if ordering a sandwich (or multiple) be prepared to wait. Getting it Not grilled will lessen your waiting time significantly!

    Given this is a cheese shop I'm surprised they didn't have more cheese sandwiches on offer. Feels a bit overpriced but great to see a shop that's really based around cheese and what to serve with it.
